Local climate vulnerability and adaptation
vulnerability assessments for local
policy-makingExperiences from Norway
  • Ingrid Thorsen Norland - ProSus, University of
    Oslo
  • Lars Otto Næss Cicero, University of
    Oslo/Tyndall Centre
  • William M. Lafferty - ProSus, University of Oslo

How to establish climate adaptation on the local
policy-agenda?
  • Adaptation to what?
  • ? Developing the right vulnerability assessment
    tool
  • Validity and relevance
  • ? How can assessments be used to enhance the
    formulation of adaptation policies?

Key challenges
  • Validity of the information provided by
    local-scale vulnerability assessments
  • Relevance of the information for local
    decision-making processes

8
Towards local-level validity and relevance
  • A dialectic approach to local-scale assessment
  • Exchange of information and perspectives on
    vulnerability across scales and levels
  • Framework for communication and awareness-raising
    across levels (stakeholders and governments)
  • Emphasising process over product
  • Local government driven assessment process -
    involving local stakeholders and external experts
  • Awareness-raising and ownership to conclusions
    (and future policies)
  • Identify institutional entry points
  • Provide information in format that fits
    institutional structures
